Re: The Strogaloft - Construction Begins... Again!

Got myself a new piece of rolling stock today! A Bachmann FNA nuclear flask wagon, its a TMC weathered version. Really pleased with it, hoping to get another one (or two). Heres some pics of the nuclear flask train, double headed by a 25 and 29. http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff219/DrStroganoff/...

Re: Hornby Railroad HST/class 43

Its a shame it was discontinued as it was perfect for re-motoring the old Lima HST. I've been trying to find one without any luck :(

Re: The Strogaloft - Construction Begins... Again!

Hi Britfarmer, yes it definately needs something... I've been looking for ideas this morning for what sort of thing I could put on there, and I have seen that Hornby do a 'Jubilee Clock Tower' that might look quite good on there... I've got a pack of benches here somewhere. The square hasnt been fix...

Hi Ian, I've got loads of posts, but I could do with a few more lengths of the overhead wires if you have some going?

Re: The Strogaloft - Construction Begins... Again!

But I did sell my roundhouse engine shed the other week, so had a bit of paypal money to play with, so purchased a couple of Superquick/Metcalfe kits to keep me busy. Have spent this weekend putting together one of the...

Determined to get the class 25 running nicely, I gave it a good wheel cleaning and a dab of oil, and fair play, it ran very sweetly for the whole time I w...
